2018 - 2019
This year we will be using Mindmate and SEAL resources to deliver our PSHE curriculum. Many aspects of the curriculum are also covered through RE, Maths, Science, PE, Topic and Literacy.
October is Black History Month and, whilst we learn about the history of people from all cultures throughout the year, this is an opportunity for us to acknowledge the unfair biased that the reporting of history has had in the past. It also provides us with an opportunity to explore the themes of racism, prejudice and equality and to reinforce the message that we are all God’s children, made in God’s image and therefore should be treated with equal respect.
Summer 1: Relationships
This SEAL theme continues to explore feelings. The children will consider people who are important to them, and begin to understand positive and negative feelings towards, and about, friends and family, and how to manage them.
To start the term, we held our SEAL day on Monday 16th April. As you'll see from the photos below, the children looked at friendships, feelings of jealousy and in Year 6, the children explored bereavement and how to deal with feelings of loss. The key thread running through each class's learning, is that of showing love for one another.
"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance."
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Spring 2: It's Good To Be Me!
“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves
with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive. Above all clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body.” (Colossians 3: 12-15)
